From the moment you open the front door, you are greeted with the most spectacular views of False Bay. It’s very easy to spend your days on the fabulous glass fronted deck or sitting in the bay window just gazing out over the water. Boulders, penguins and colonial, upmarket Simonstown one way and Cape Point and baboons the other. Dan is just so helpful and jolly and nothing is too much trouble. On the practical side - very clean, lots of lovely white towels, 3 great beds all ensuite (great views from all )and wonderful living, dining space and well equipped kitchen. Loved it so much, we hope to come back again next December. Clare & Andrew
Beautiful staging point to explore the entire peninsula
We loved our stay at the Oatlands Place. Before I talk about the property itself, I want to give a shout out to Dan (the property manager). He was absolutely wonderful and went above and beyond to help us out during our trip. If we had to rate the property manager, he would easily get 5/5 stars. Moving on to the property, it was just gorgeous. It had a rustic feel to it, but was very well maintained and updated. The views were breathtaking, and we loved waking up and reading on the porch. Another thing we loved was the placement of the bathtubs. They are next placed next to some large sliding glass doors, so you can take a nice bath and just stare out onto the bay, with the sea breeze blowing in if you want. Finally, it was a perfect staging point to explore the rest of the peninsula. We did all the scenic drives, explored the quirky towns nearby (Kalkbay, Noordhoek, Hout Bay, Fish Hoek, Simons Town, etc), and ate at many delicious restaurants. We highly recommend this place for anyone who would like to experience Cape Town, especially if they're interested in the southern peninsula!
tolles Haus mit Blick auf die False-Bay
Das Haus liegt direkt an der False-Bay, alle Zimmer bieten Blick aufs Meer. Dan war ein sehr netter Verwalter. Im Haus ist alles notwendige vorhanden. Sehr gute Restaurants sind unweit zu erreichen. Zum Cap Point ist es nur ein kurzer Weg und über die Panoramastraße M6 geht es zum Tafelberg. Zu empfehlen ist auch das Frühstück im Lighthouse Cafe .
